Buffalo is a city on the shores of Lake Erie in upstate New York. Its fine neoclassical, beaux arts and art deco architecture speak to its history as an industrial capital in the early 20th century. Options for sightseeing include walking along the waterfront taking in views of the Peace Bridge (which connects Buffalo to Canada); touring the Frank Lloyd Wright Darwin Martin House, Graycliff Mansion, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery - a Greek Revival museum with works by Picasso and Warhol, the 398-ft art deco City Hall; cruising the Erie Canal; boating under Niagara Falls on the Maid of the Mist; visiting the gravesites of Rick James, Millard Fillmore, Chief Red Jacket, Mary Talbert and 10,000 veterans and much more.
